Keep your laptop and PC in Unison

Correction: although Unison uses inode-number checking as a shortcut (only on Unix), it does compare the contents of possibly-updated files. See "Fast Update Detection" section of the manual. An option "-fastcheck no" can be used to force comparison of contents for every files. This means that "false updates detection" cannot occur, as stated in the "What is an Update?" section. (If you want touching files to be detected as an update, use -times option.)
